Provisional Class Holiday Social

By Danielle Stromgren, Provisional Committee

What a great ending to the 2011 year with two festive events getting us into the holiday spirit. The fourth annual Finishing Touches Home Tour was an exciting way to set the month of December in motion and the holiday cookie exchange filled our tummies with scrumptious goodies from various traditions.

One of the lovely homes featured
in the Home Tour.
The Home Tour was highly regarded by many with a variety of events you could attend on December 2-3. Not only was there an opportunity to see four beautifully decorated homes in Atherton, but there was also the designer breakfast held at the Rosewood where it gave people a chance to ask the interior designers questions about each home they decorated for the tour. The boutique was also another sought after spot with great items ranging from goodies, jewelry to wreaths.

So many cookies to try at the
Cookie Exchange!
The provisional class also had a fun holiday cookie exchange on December 14 held at the Gatehouse. Many  people showed up bearing delicious treats. With over 50 different desserts to choose from, it was hard to vote on who would win the contest. After tasting many cookies, everyone placed their vote and came to the conclusion that Lauren Case had the best tasting cookies. Amanda George won for the most unique with individual size tie-dyed cheesecake and Jennifer Potter won best looking with her wonderfully decorated Santa cookies. If there wasn’t enough room in your take-out box to bring home the cookies you loved then you can download the pdf file that has all the recipes from the event.

If you missed either of these wonderful events this year, be sure to mark your calendar for the next social and other great upcoming Junior League events. You can view all upcoming events on the JLPA-MP website calendar here.
